Dear ladies and gentleman, dear colleagues,

In 2014 we will meet in Durban, South Africa. It will be the first time that a world congress for Psychotherapy will take place in the cradle of the human species, in Africa, with its rich traditions in healing and treatment of human beings.

It will be an encounter of western traditions in psychotherapy with the traditions of African healing. We want to show you the richness of Africa in this context and also the up-to-date information about the development of psychotherapy in all continents.We want to show the research findings as well as the different psychotherapy school approaches, the disturbance-focused treatment as well as psychotherapy for different patient groups. It starts with child psychotherapy and goes through the life cycle to psychotherapy for the elderly, and in between all groups are that of those who need psychotherapy as social support and help.Besides the lectures and seminars to be presented at the world congress, Durban will be a meeting place for psychotherapists from all continents and a place where new projects will come into existence and will be shaped for the future.

Furthermore, it is a place of touristic beauties before and after the congress.

You are all invited!

Prof. Dr. Alfred Pritz
President of the World Council for Psychotherapy – WCP
